Hemmeter Building

Historic Restoration & Tenant Build-Out: Detroit, Michigan

Originally built in 1911, the Hemmeter Building is a historic structure with seven aboveground floors, a full basement, and a roof deck/garden area overlooking the city skyline. Restoration work involved completely restoring the building interior and exterior to a “like new” and code compliant condition, including the shell, core, and the infrastructure systems of all floors. New building features constructed included restrooms on each floor, demising walls (ground/first floor), mechanical rooms, computer IDF (Independent Distribution Facility) rooms, replacement (if not restoration) of all exterior windows, replacement of the existing ground floor storefront (windows, insulated walls, doors), and the modification and addition of stairways as required. A new elevator was also installed to replace the original one.
